Inscription. This Flag Park is a collaborative effort of the City of Bishopville, a Palmetto Pride Grant, Pee Dee Tourism, the SC Cotton Museum and private donations to show support for our men and women on active duty in the military.

Ten flag poles and other amenities were generously donated by the Bishopville High School Class of 1967 to honor all veterans and with gratitude to past and present Lee County legislative delegates; Senator William Green DesChamps and T. Bruce Smith and also Representative Isaac C. Joe and Grady A. Brown for their dedicated service and representation of all Lee County residents.

The American Flag and flagpole were donated by the Woodman of the World and flags representing our State, the six branches of our military and POW’s were donated by the citizens.
